This is Murray, one of the ten high schools in the city of St. Paul. In fact we are the youngest
-seven years old. Sheltered in a hollow amidst a lovely residential district, Murray gives us the
friendly feeling so frequently found in small towns and communities. Some nine hundred of
us students coming from twelve public and parochial schools interchange ideas and interests as
the busy days of high school slip by all too quickly. There is the homework and the daily routine
that sometimes trouble the best of us-but friendliness abounds, and that is what makes life
rich and joyous. Yes, happiness is where one finds
it and we do find it at 1450 Grantham
Street, the place where we live.

Explanation is simple, however, for staff members are
sworn to such secrecy that they feel guilty if their
left hand knows what its right is doing.
With hat in hand, the former ingrate backs meekly
away from the tirade of journalistic, and sometimes
not so journalistic, language. Nothing is left but to
wait for spring when the Pilot is published. Now

band, but it has also become a marching unit. Re-
splendent in new uniforms, the marching band made
its first public appearance at the University of Min-
nesota Agricultural School's Campus Day in May.

Although it is doubtful whether 'Amusic has charms to sooth the savage beast,', there
is no doubt that the Murray choir has a miraculous Way of soothing troubled minds.
Underclassmen forget to snap their bubblegum, the boys stop flexing their muscles and
Winking at the girls, While the girls pass the acid test by maintaining complete silence.
In October the choir sang with the all-state high school chorus for the annual meeting
of the Minnesota Education Association. Various members of the choir again proved
their merit by performing for the Athletic Club Banquet, the Guttersen School P.T.A.,
the American Legion Auxiliary, the St. Anthony Park Legion Post No. 8, and collabor-
ated with the Murray band in the annual spring band concert. In addition, individuals
and smaller ensembles from the choir presented other programs for various community
activities and school assemblies. It is superior performance that keeps the Murray choir
in constant demand, not only here, but in other parts of the city. Turning its talents
toward radio, the Murray choir was featured February fourth, on the radio program,
"Salute to the Schoolsf,
Ioining in a community project, the choir appeared with the St. Anthony Park Ameri-
can Legion Band on February twenty-first and for senior night at the P.T.A.
Under the capable direction of Helen McGeever, the Murray choir produced the Gil-
bert and Sullivan comic opera, '4The Mikado," with full orchestral accompaniment.
"The Mikadof' with a Iapanese background and oriental atmosphere, has very little
dialogue and gave the choir ample opportunity to display their vocal talents.
Now commencement is not far away and school life would not be complete for
seniors if the choir did not participate at this time. At present choristers are busily
engaged in preparing for their last appearances of the year, baccalaureate services, and

Demonstrating that they too could give
a successful musical performance with
scenery and costumes, the "B" choir, for the
Hrst time this year, presented a program for
a student assembly and the P.T.A. 'AThe
Harvest," a four part cantata for mixed
voices by Wilcox 'and Kountz Was given un-
der the directiogpof Helen McGeever,
The prologue which opened "The Har-
vestv set the general atmosphere for the pro-
duction and introduced the "Song of
Thanksgiving." "Autumn Splendorn con-
veyed to the audience a choral picture of
the beauty of the fields and harvest. A
touch of sentiment was breathed in "Fair
Harvest Moon' which made Way for a brisk
and rollicking folk dance. The male voices
were heard alone in "The Hunter,s Hornf,
and the girls' chorus sang the lilting madri-
gal, "loin in the Harvest Dancing."
This introduced a fast-moving carnival
scene and gradually merged into the solemn
dignity of "The Song of Thanksgiving" ki
which brought the Cantata to a close.

I Turn about is fair play. Mr. Hubert Kuefler explains
the intricacies of one of the machines in his department
to Mr. George Bergup, wood shop instructor.
Q These teachers are not baflled by bugs, beetles, test tubes,
or formulas. Mr. Bernard Quinn, Mr. Albert Rother,
and Miss Gladys Rose impart much of their scientific
knowledge to many eager students.
Mutual book interests are shared by these Englishi
teachers in their free periods. Here Miss Mabel Surratt,i
Miss Elsea Peterson, Miss Constance Howe, Mrs. Cora:
Halvorson, and Mrs. Mary Harmon discuss the meritsl
of several library novels.
Mathematics looks as if it were fun if the expressions onl
the faces of Miss Olive Batschlet and Miss Louise Smith!
are any indication.

As our graduation date approaches, we as seniors
will always remember our high school days as the
most important and unforgetable in our lives. They
have been filled with events and friends that will
be recalled by us often.
In the eventful year of 1943, we began high school.
Meeting new friends and becoming adjusted to the
changes were only a few of the experiences of the
years. We numbered over two hundred twenty-five,
and became the largest class in the school.
As sophomores, we began to take an active part in
the chief activities of the school. We elected our
Student Council Executive Board-Representatives and
some of us became members of the Library Club.
With Miss Eleanor Steelsmith, selected as our class
adviser, we became an organized class as juniors.
Robert Brace was elected president and led us through
A theater party, a barn dance, and a vaudeville
marked the year as a great success.
The Hnal event was the Iunior-Senior Prom held
in the Commodore Hotel on May twenty-fourth. To
carry out the gay "Fiestal' theme, colorful Mexican
decorations adorned the room.
Before we realized it, we were promoted into our
twelfth and final year. Earl Paquin, our class presi-
dent, called our first meeting to order on Ianuary
twenty-fourth, 1947. Numerous plans were suggested
for coming events.
The presentation of the class play, "Come Rain or
Shine," a three act light comedy, took place on Ian-
uary thirtieth and thirty-first. A double cast was
chosen for the entire production.
We want to extend our sincerest thanks to both
the teachers and the students who have helped to make
our high school days a great success.

Problems may be trivial or great depending upon
the issues involved. Whatever they are, leaders enjoy
consulting Mr. H. E. Hillard, our principal, who from
his storehouse of Wisdom can always I-ind a solution
or point a Way.
Here, Patricia Dyer, Student Council president, and
Earl Paquin, president of the Senior Class, are in
conference with "His Honorn-our leader, judge and

Education is no longer an opportunityg it is an economic necessity so created by the
scientific era in which we are living and making history.
No longer are we isolated communities, states, or nations. No longer are we independent

Youth always meets the challenge of any age, but in no other to date has it been so
important to appreciate and understand the social and cultural life of every nation.
It is my wish, as you bring your high school days to a close, that you will see fit to
find your place in this age of progress so that you may enrich your own life and those
with whom you will live and work.

At elections held in October, an enthusiastic Iunioi'
Class chose for their chief executive Wallace Bell.
Other oiiicers elected were Ruth Fortmeyer, vice pres-
identg Valorie Iohnson, secretaryg Ronald Lokken,
treasurer. Representatives from each junior home room
were chosen to form a board which planned all our
Co-Advisers Make History
activities. With Mrs. Inez Gugisberg and Miss Gladys
Rose as our able advisers, we then started our success-
ful career as an organized class. We have established
history in that this is the first time at Murray that
there have been co-advisers of a class.
On Sadie Hawkinis Day, a dance was given for
our benefit by the Canteen committee. The main fea-
ture of this event was the announcement of the Win-
ners of the "Lena the Hyenal' drawing contest and
the unveiling of the winning "Lenas". Lil' Abner and
Daisy Mae were at last -married at this Dog-
In November We ordered our class rings and
pins. After what seemed years, they were re-
ceived by us on Ianuary tenth with the usual
remarks of 'iLet me see your ringf,-or "What
kind of a pin did you get?,'
The date of that most important social event-
the Iunior-Senior Prom-is set for May twenty-
third. The colorful theme will be carried out by
the decorations in the Continental Room of the
St. Paul Hotel. Harry Given's Orchestra has
been named to supply the music.
Among our hours of fun, there have been
moments of sadness. We pause to mourn the
death of one of our classmates.

Each year finds Murray's denizens with old and new tricks up their sleeves and this
year was no exception.
One new addition is the co-pilots, the junior counter-parts of the Pilot athletic teams.
These mighty little midgets from the eighth grade may supply prize stock to future
A more established institution is homecoming, with main interest centered on the
queen contest with vigorous campaigns of pleading posters and side-splitting skits.
This year's candidates, Gerry Busse, Queen Margery Finger, Beverly Gulden, Astrid
Haugan, and Marjorie Cochrane are shown with their able managers Earl Paquin,
Glenn Steinke, Bill Lewis, Bob Bulger, and Roger Adams.
Murray personality, Bob Iohnson, has gathered fame through his unollicial title of
best-dressed man about school. Here Bob displays comparatively conservative togs from
his wardrobe of pink shirts, plaid pants, and battered chapeaux.
City slickers were given the chance to don jeans and straw hats at the Sadie Hawkins'

Fiesta! Gay multicolored flowers, huge fans and sombreros, and torrid music created
a South of the Border atmosphere for the 1946 prom.
The annual prom is a high school tradition faithfully observed at Murray as else-
where. The drawing near of prom time puts Murray males at a premium and brings
dress suits out of moth-balls and new formals out of tissue paper and boxes. Pre-prom
days find him brushing up on the latest dance steps and her trying the newest hairdoes
in anticipation of the great day. -
Much of the success of the 1946 prom was due to the combined efforts of the adviser,
Miss Eleanor Steelsmith, and the hard-working prom committee, headed by Iohn Ray-
Robert Brace and Ieanne Malecha, the couple who led the grand march, head a line
of other prom-goers. e
Few students get behind the scenes to see
what makes Murray tick, so we shall pre-
sent some of the unsung heroes of the foot-
It takes more than meets the eye to make
a play. lean Lewis undergoes the application
of grease paint as Ioan Vanouse and Miss
Florence Vest prepare her for the glare and
glamour of the stage.
The lot of shifting heavy scenery and ad-
justing spotlights falls on hard-working
stage force members. Preparing props and
special lighting effects for a dramatic pro-
duction are George Pothen, Kenneth Miller,
Lowell Munson, Bill Lewis, and Erwin
The hot lunches students balance on trays
first, second, or third lunch periods are the
results of long hours of preparation. Miss
Catherine McDonough, Mrs. Dora McCall,
and Mrs. Vida Stiles convert ingredients in
the raw to steaming hot dishes.
Usherettes Barbara Davis, Marilyn Gavin,
Betty Lou Nelson, and Alice Krantz have a
great following, for they guide theater-goers
to their seats in Murray's auditorium.

Under Mrs. Carlgren's supervision, ofhce
worker Carol Strand writes an excuse for
Marcia Williams. Stenography students gain
valuable experience through their work in
the school office. Filing cards, answering
phone calls, and typing bulletins comprise
part of their duties. A
The maintenance force Hnds numerous
tasks to perform, including 'stoking the
school furnace, sweeping the halls, and wax-
ing the desks. Important to the well-being
of the school are those whose work is never

royal blue vestments require much care.
They need cleaning, the gold collars must
be washed, and the long pleats ironed.

Norm Rynard pitched the Pilots to their second
win, a 10-0 shut-out victory over Marshall.
Murray errors aided the Humboldt Indians to de-

season. Failing to cash in on scoring opportunities
galore, the team fell before Mechanic Arts, 14-8. Mur-

Murray's tennis team, troubled by its inexperience
and lack of proper coaching, dropped every match
of its seven game schedule. Wally Hughes, tennis
captain, assumed coaching responsibilities and did A1
line job of rounding the team into shape and making
matches with other schools.
The Pilots dropped their two non-conference, warm-
up matches to U High and Cretin. Chuck Grose and
Wally Hughes teamed up to gain a point for Murray
by winning a doubles match against Cretin. Murray
dropped its first conference tilt to Monroe. Hughes
gained another point for the Pilots by securing a vic-
tory against Monroe in a singles match. Iohnson and
Humboldt, city co-champions, shut out the Murray
racketmen by a 5-0 counts. Hughes again stood out
for Murray in the Central match when he Won his
singles match only to lose, 4-1. In its last game of the
season, against Marshall, the team lost to the Grey-
hounds by a 3-Z count. Dick de Neui took a singles
match. Other team members were Bob Cook and lohn
Their Way to Victory
Murrayls 1946-47 swimming team did not gain a
great deal of acclaim but the young tankmen did gain
experience. Hiampered by the loss of all but one of its
1945-1946 lettermen the team was made up largely
The swimmers dropped their Hrst meet, a non-
conference one with Iohnson, by a 37-29 count. Cen-
tral defeated Murray in both teams' conference open-
er. The Minutemen rolled over Murray, 57-18.
Murray bounced back to defeat Washington. The
Pilots won the meet by a 39-36 score. The tankmen
then fell before Wilson, 39-36.
Murray gained its second win over Marshall. George
Adam, Ken Carlson, Iim Barnes, lim Harmon, and
Denis Bakke were the main factors in the 41-33 Win.
In their Hnal meet the team lost to Harding, 46-29.
Murray gained a tie for fifth place by virtue of two
wins and three losses. The tankmen gained two points
in the city meet, taking eighth place.
The swimmers will suffer the loss of only one
graduating senior, George Adam. The remainder of
the team will be back for the 1947-48 season.
No world records were shattered, but the Murray
tankmen made a fine showing for the season.
Here they are-the Murray tankmen ready
for an hour's practice. Although the boys
were handicapped by lack of a nearby swim-
ming pool, they turned out regularly at the
downtown YMCA for practices. Student en-
thusiasm for this sport is one reason why St.
Paul schools should have adequate facilities.
